The Galloping Gourmet
1 October 2007 | by (Austin, TX.) – See all my reviews

I used to watch Graham Kerr in the late 60's and early 70's as a teenager. (Note: "Kerr" is pronounced "care"). Graham has an infectious smile, uncanny wit, and whenever I was down, he would make me laugh. A funny thing happened - I learned how to cook too! My parents often wonder why I have a taste for rich, gourmet food, and I guess this is why. Neither of them are gourmets.

Graham changed his cooking show after his wife, Treena, the show's producer, developed arterial disease. While Graham is still "The Galloping Gourmet" in my heart, his show is now dedicated to healthy cooking. Yuck! But I don't fault him for making Treena, and countless others, healthy.

I know DVD's are available for his current work, but nobody thought to save his earlier shows. That's a shame, because that is where he shined. I loved those shows where he would combine bacon fat, pure cream, Kirsch, and "clarified" butter into some delicious concoction.

I miss you both, Graham and Treena, and hope you are enjoying your well-deserved retirement years! God Bless.
